3 stars Post Rock, this time

Lost Reverie's second release, entitled Railroads, after the impressive, but somewhat disjointed debut, is a more concise album and shows Juan Herrera knowing exactly where to go. This time he leaves most of the heaviness behind and focus' on the melancholic and gentle aspects of Post Rock.

Opening with Kumori, an easy song to divide in two halfs. The first half being tranquil and atmospheric featuring Juan Herrera's first vocal appearance, and got to say they fit very well with the mood. The second half brings back the metal aspects of the debut with Juan's great capability on the guitar duites, but not really as heavy since the melancholic atmoshpere is still present in the background.

Ghosts is a rather tenebrous tune, as the title may imply, in which Juan was capable of achieving a pretty dark mood with the bass and guitar, yet never too scary to put the listener off.

Railroads on the other hand is a beautiful tune played softly with a lot of mellotron, but with enough emotion, thanks to Juan's great guitar playing, to keep the listener's attention.

The EP finishes with another gorgeous tune called Cloudy. As the title implies, it does have a semi-dark mood, but it doesn't work as a tenebrous factor as in Ghosts, if not for a rather nice mood with simple piano melodies and acoustic guitar chords.

As a whole, this EP by Juan is something that makes me look forward for his upcoming studio release. It's less heavy, but still takes your attention pretty easily and the compositions, like I stated at the beginning, are more concise than in the debut.

3 stars since they're only four songs and none are really excellent, yet if Juan manages to pull out an entire record in the likes of this EP, then that'll surely get the 4 stars.

The Quiet One | 3/5 |
